‘The Chiefest Subject of our Preaching:’ John Owen on Christ-Centered Preaching

People in Reformed churches today often debate the merits of “redemptive historical” preaching. Sadly, a “redemptive historical preacher” has become shorthand for someone who preaches Christ, but who does not believe in direct sermon application. By contrast, the Apostle Paul preached Christ and applied Him to individual consciences through very direct and individualized personal appeals […]

Good Works Necessary for Salvation?

Before making my move across the Tiber to Reformation21, I thought I’d offer some thoughts on a typically vexing question. Having edited a book on the diversity of the Reformed tradition in the seventeenth century, I am fully aware of the places where there are differences of opinion among Reformed theologians.

Tullian Tchividjian responded to an article by a lady named Jen Wilkin.

Reviews of Byrd & Duguid

These reviews were supposed to appear on Reformation21, but I was also asked by them to review John Frame’s new Systematic Theology.
